Immigration - Asylum - Appeal - Reason for decision - Secretary of State refusing asylum - Special adjudicator determining that treatment of applicant not amounting to persecution - Immigration Appeal Tribunal refusing appeal against adjudicator's decision - Whether tribunal in error in determining treatment not amounting to persecution - Whether account taken of future risk of persecution.
In determining a claim for asylum, the Immigration Appeal Tribunal had erred in concluding that an applicant, a Roma, was not at risk of future persecution as it had failed to consider that he had been attacked in the past because of his ethnicity, and therefore remained at risk in the future, not because he had been attacked before, but because his ethnicity remained the same, and there had been no change in the quality of state protection or in the attitude of others towards those who were Roma.
